GeoLynx CrimeAnalyst selected as 2009 Hot Product by Public Safety Communications Magazine
St. Cloud, MN: GeoComm’s GeoLynx CrimeAnalyst has been selected by Public Safety Communications, the official magazine of the Association of Public Safety Communication Officials (APCO) International, as one of its 2009 Hot Products.
GeoLynx CrimeAnalyst provides local law enforcement the tools to geographically define criminal activities in order to detect patterns, trends, and ultimately to make intelligent policing decisions based on actionable data. GeoLynx CrimeAnalyst is a must have tool for law enforcement agencies of any size. It can be easily incorporated into standard operations to aid in creating geospatial knowledge and situational awareness from a wide variety of data sources. It is an affordable and user friendly analytical tool to leverage underlying technology of ESRI’s ArcView GIS product.
“GeoLynx CrimeAnalyst is very suited to the APCO hot products distinction. It brings powerful GIS analytical tools to the user. This must-have tool is a perfect extension of current crime analysis and GIS operations and provides reporting and spatial analysis value for making informed policing decisions,” said Jody Sayre, GeoComm Vice President of Client Services.
This year 35 companies submitted 43 products for consideration in the Hot Products review opportunity. Of those 43 products 15 were chosen to be featured as APCO’s 2009 Hot Products in the November issue of Public Safety Communications. These products were displayed at the 75th Annual APCO Conference in Las Vegas where an anonymous editorial team roamed the exhibit hall specifically examining the products submitted for review and assessed how all of the products met mission critical needs.
